|Georgia's State DNA Lab Needs More Funding to Analyze Backlogs
The Georgia Network to End Sexual Assault (GNESA) hosted a two-day meeting in Atlanta, about the importance of federal funding in reducing Georgia's backlog of unsolved cases, and the absolute need for the State to provide improved funding for its DNA program. Jennifer Bivins, GNESA's Executive Director, acknowledged that Georgia's DNA program provides victims with an important step forward in their healing process when attackers are named through DNA. But Georgia's commitment to state funding is weak in comparison with that of other state labs.
